Part of the Västra Götaland region

Västtrafik AB is owned by the Västra Götaland region. The regional council decides on Västtrafik's budget and produces, every fourth year, a traffic supply programme that specifies how public transport is to be developed in the long term. The overall goal is to double the travels with Västtrafik from 2006 to 2025.
